Pushing and Pulling on the River
Posted on Jun 4th, 2019

 
In front, the MV Sea Lion lines up to maneuver through upcoming bridge. Hidden behind is the MV Sea Cat.
 
 
Towboats MV Sea Lion and MV Sea Cat were seen heading upstream on the San Bernard pushing and pulling a barge loaded with a huge pressure vessel destined for the Phillips 66 terminal on the river where it will be unloaded and transported to the Chevron Phillips Chemical expansion in Old Ocean.
 
Pulling at the bow of the barge is the MV Sea Lion
 
Pushing at the stern is the MV Sea Cat. Hard to see is the brown-water sailor or deckhand sitting on the bottom deck below the orange life ring.

Showing great boat handling, the tow boat captains ease the loaded barge under the FM 521 bridge abutment, sliding through with room to spare...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
and continues up the river to the terminal.
